We last visited this hotel 5 years ago and could not fault it but this visit was not so amazing. Don't get me wrong it's still good but when such high standards are set they have to be maintained. For us the food although good for buffet dining was not up to scratch. I found it best to take small...

Our party arrived tired after a wedding and were met by smiling faces and helpers to take luggage to the rooms. The hotel is well situated and has many facilities, or if you choose, to just chill. The food is excellent - probably to the detriment of your waist! Well worth a visit and will be back when I return...

Half way through our stay here and so far am really enjoying the experience. It was a long drive from our initial base in Durban over 4hours due to roadworks on the N3 motorway near Estcourt. Have a beautiful deluxe room with a mountain view with a great bathroom with large walk-in shower plus bath. Amazing value for money with...

A huge disappointment. Though the hotel is well positioned, the staff are woefully inadequate. Have they ever had any training? Arriving in a torrential downpour, I was told to park across the road from reception (for some reason you are forbidden from parking next to reception) and when I asked for an umbrella, I was told that they were available...
